Alabama Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban released the first official “two deep” depth chart of the 2013 season, as is customary the Monday before the Tide’s first game.

The depth chart, featuring the first- and second-team offense, defense and special teams for 2013, lists several freshmen across the teams, but none are listed as starters other than long snapper Cole Mazza.

Several players are listed together on the first team as well as the second team, meaning that both are considered co-starters or co-second teamers. One player not listed on the two-deep is Geno Smith, although that will likely change after the first game, when Smith returns from suspension. Freshman offensive tackle Grant Hill is listed third at left tackle as well.

Not listed here is the third group of running backs, which has Dee Hart, Derrick Henry and Altee Tenpenny listed together. Also, Raheem Falkins is listed as the third receiver at the X position. There is no Jack linebacker listed on the second team either, as Denzel Devall and Xzavier Dickson are listed as co-starters and will both play there. Dickson will play on the defensive line as well.
